In May of 1999, NASHP and The Commonwealth Fund launched the ABCD project. As states continue to address issues related to early childhood development, this report offers lessons, strategies, and policies learned over the past 12 years through this initiative. This report provides an overview of the focus and priorities of the ABCD initiative, a high-level snapshot of impact and critical success factors that can contribute to making a difference in the health and development of young children.
